A Pentecostal pastor got four chairs on a recent episode of The Voice while he belted “We’ve Got Tonight.”
Todd Tilghman, who pastors Cornerstone Church in Meridian, Mississippi, says he and his wife, Brooke, have eight kids, two of whom are adopted.
Kelly Clarkson, John Legend and Nick Jonas gave Tilghman a standing ovation for his stellar performance.
Legend was the last judge to turn his chair around, but when he did, he says he saw “the joy and the spirit” Tilghman had.
“I’ve literally never performed,” Tilghman says. “I just sing at church.”
Legend smiled and said his grandfather was a pastor and his mother was a choir director. “I was in church Sunday morning, Sunday night, Wednesday night, sometimes Friday night,” he said.
